Re: Who has offered the best overall strategy for dealing with M/S?
The scary part to all this is the existence of over 130 known strains of M/S malware. Note that the operative word is "known". Don't even think that the bad guys don't have "unknown" malware already.

Who has offered the best overall strategy for dealing with M/S?
Lots of rain around here today; but nothing like the downpour of un-dos, re-dos and don't-do-anything statements coming from vendors and security firms. 

At this point in the M/S mess, has anybody provided high quality, actionable, strategic advice for organizations or individuals, which has helped dodge this bullet (or barrage, might be more appropriate)? 

In general, we've been trained to act quickly (if we hadn't acted proactively).  The M/S situation has turned that on its ear.  Even those with detection/mitigation protocols and plans in place weren't ready for a situation where there was nothing to detect, and nothing to fear but fear itself.  Many that moved quickly found they stepped into a minefield. 

Anybody want to give credit to those that have lead them through unscathed (so far)?
